Peter Nurre, Helped Extend - 19

Cabrillo College already had the lead in this March 1990 game and Peter Nurre helped extend it, according to The Santa Cruz Sentinel.

With two runners on ahead of him, Nurre knocked a double to bring them home and the score to 7-4, The Sentinel wrote.

Nurre went on from Cabrillo to the pros. His stay in the pros, though, proved brief. He played a single season.

Nurre's career began and ended in 1990, taken by the Dodgers in the 20th round of the draft out of Cabrillo College in California.

At Cabrillo, Nurre pushed over a run in another March 1990 game on a groundout.

Signing with the Dodgers, the club assigned Nurre to the rookie Gulf Coast League, at Kissimmee.

He saw 29 games, playing mostly at catcher. He went 15 for 63 for a .238 average. He stole three bases and struck out 12 times to mark the extent of his pro career.
